This is where ZZ Gundam momentarily stops being the goofy show we came to love in it's first half, and the horrors of war rear up again and again. We found this second batch of episodes to be really impactful, cementing ZZ Gundam as potentially the funniest and most tragic Gundam series that we've covered so far.

In this conversation we talk about how ZZ interacts with the themes that we've discussed so far in the Gundam franchise and how it handles it's peculiar tonal pendulum (we would argue quite meaningfully).
